Dhruti Shah
Creative Lead, Have You Thought About
What is the best part of your job?
love being able to do lots of different things and tie together a very interdisciplinary approach. Getting to speak to lots of different people and helping them on their journey is also pretty cool. As I’m a creative practitioner, my practice involves a portfolio career. I am an accredited relational dynamics coach and I love helping people feel empowered to work on obstacles. I am a freelance journalist so being able to report and share stories and give insight on how the world works is very nourishing. And then being able to write and produce and assist with other projects is something that allows me to learn and be useful to the world.
If you could give one piece of advice to yourself at the start of your career, what would it be?
Trust yourself and maintain that belief but also seek out allies from the very start. So people that will have your back and support you. Building connections is something that I think is often underrated. And so I would share in this time-travelling way that trust and allyship is something worth investing time in.
What is one act of kindness that you will remember forever?
It’s hard to pick just one act of kindness as I like to believe that people try to be kind and prefer to be kind rather than cruel. I do remember though that I was going through a bereavement and I was working overseas and living by myself – so I was away from my usual support networks. A lot was going on besides that bereavement but I’d arranged to meet a contact from a story I’d written a few years ago as we both were in the same city. And when I called her to say maybe she’d want to rearrange as I wouldn’t be on top form due to the close bereavement, instead, she came round to see me and we had dinner together and it was lovely to be able to have a conversation and catch up with a fellow human being beyond our professional relationship. That was incredibly kind.
What is your favourite quote?
“Fear urged him to go back, but growth drove him on.”
My favourite quote comes from Jack London’s book White Fang.
If you could invite two people to dinner (dead or alive!) who would they be and why?
I would have been honoured to have had dinner with EK Janaki Ammal, an Indian scientist who had so many different skills. She was a cytogeneticist, a palaeobotanist and so much more. She was a pioneer when it came to sugarcane breeding. She had to face a lot of sexism and racism and I’d be fascinated to learn from her.

I find Andrew Garfield an intriguing character. I think he picks interesting parts to play and he also has said some beautiful things about grief and how to embrace it. I’d be interested in a dinner conversation with him.
